CNN’s Chris Cuomo Drops Big Bomb on Trump As Talk About White Supremacists Like You


“CUOMO PRIME TIME.” >>THANK YOU VERY MUCH, ANDERSON. IT’S A BEAUTIFUL STORY. IT’S A GOOD PROBLEM TO HAVE. THEY HAVE TOO MANY PEOPLE TRYING TO HELP. ALL RIGHT, HERE WE ARE LIVE FROM EL PASO. THE SHIRT TELLS THE STORY. EL PASO STRONG. THIS COMMUNITY IS SHOWING THE BEST OF THIS COUNTRY IN THE WORST OF SITUATIONS. WHEN THE PRESIDENT COMES TOMORROW, WE ALL HOPE HE CAN EMBRACE THE POSITIVE MOOD, THE PEOPLE COMING TOGETHER. AND THEY WANT THE SAME THINGS THAT AMERICANS WANT IN THIS COUNTRY. WE HAVE RECEIVED BRAND-NEW VIDEO THAT COULD SHED NEW LIGHT ON THE MASSACRE IN DAYTON. IT’S REMARKABLE IN THAT IT SHOWS SUCH A NONCHALANCE. THIS TYPE OF GRUESOME EVENT, THE FOOTAGE WE’RE GOING TO SHOW YOU IN JUST A MOMENT, WILL TELL YOU A PART OF THE STORY THAT SHEDS SOME LIGHT ON THE KIND OF PEOPLE WHO DO THIS. HERE IN EL PASO, THE NEXT 24 HOURS ARE GOING TO TELL US A LOT ABOUT WHERE THIS PLACE GOES AND WHERE THIS COUNTRY GOES IN THE NEAR FUTURE. THE PRESIDENT IS COMING TOMORROW. MANY HERE ARE ON EDGE. THE QUESTION IS OBVIOUS, WILL THE VISIT HELP OR HURT. WE HAVE A CONGRESSWOMAN TELLING HIM TO STAY AWAY. SHE’S REFUSING TO BE COMPLICIT. WE’RE GOING TO TEST HER CASE TONIGHT. WE HAVE CONGRESSMAN SEAN DUFFY. DO REPUBLICANS NOW BELIEVE THEY’RE MORE OPEN TO CHANGE ABOUT GUN LAWS, TERRORISM, WE’LL TALK TO HIM ABOUT THAT. AND HOW DO WE FIGHT THE ENEMY WITHIN? WE HAVE TO KNOW MORE ABOUT WHO THESE WHITE NATIONALISTS THINK THEY ARE AND HOW THEY THINK. WE’RE GOING TO TAKE YOU INSIDE THE MIND OF A RAGE-FILLED WHITE SUPREMACIST WITH SOMEONE WHO WAS ONE. LET’S GET TOGETHER AND GET AFTER IT. ♪>>>LIKE I TOLD YOU, WE HAVE BRAND-NEW VIDEO JUST INTO CNN TONIGHT. IT IS EXCLUSIVE FOOTAGE OF THE DAYTON, OHIO, GUNMAN. IN THE TWO HOURS LEADING UP TO HIS MURDEROUS RAMPAGE. ON THIS SHOW, I DON’T TALK ABOUT WHO THESE KILLERS ARE. THEY ARE IRR OTHERS. THE MASS MURDERER KILLED BY POLICE. NOW, THAT IS GOING TO HELP THE POLICE FIGURE OUT A LITTLE BIT MORE OF WHAT THE MOTIVATION CYCLE WOULD CYCLE THERE. DID HE MEET WITH SOMEBODY? IT’S VERY IMPORTANT ESPECIALLY WITH THE PUSH RIGHT NOW TO RECOGNIZE THIS FOR WHAT IT IS. THIS WAS A DOMESTIC TERROR ACT. IN FACT YOU SHOULD TAKE THE WORD “DOMESTIC” OUT OF IT. IT’S TERRORISM JUST LIKE WHEN ISIS OR ANY OTHER EXTREME MUSLIM GROUP. WE’RE GOING TO BE GOING TO DAY T DAYTON TOMORROW — I’M SORRY. THE PRESIDENT IS GOING TO DAYTON TOMORROW AND HE’S ALSO COMING TO EL PASO. IT’S GOING TO BE DIFFICULT. PEOPLE ARE IN PAIN AND MANY BELIEVE HE IS A PART OF THAT PAIN. LET’S HAVE THAT DISCUSSION. TEXAS CONGRESSWOMAN, DEMOCRAT REPRESENTS THIS DISTRICT. THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR BEING HERE. JUST TO GET THE BACKSTORY RIGHT, YOU WERE INVITED TO BE PART OF THE DELEGATION THAT WOULD GO WITH THE PRESIDENT HERE. >>RIGHT. >>YOU SAID I WANT TO TALK TO HIM FIRST. WHY?>>I THINK IT’S IMPORTANT FOR US TO HAVE A DIALOGUE ABOUT WHY THIS COMMUNITY IS IN SO MUCH PAIN. I DON’T KNOW THAT HE GETS IT, CHRIS. HIS WORDS HAVE INCREDIBLE POWER. YOU WALK THROUGH ALL OF THESE FAMILIES, YOU WALK THROUGH TO THIS MEMORIAL, YOU’LL SEE PEOPLE IN PAIN. I TALKED TO A VETERAN EARLIER TO SAID I’M BEING MADE TO SEEM AS THOUGH I’M NOT AMERICAN. THE LANGUAGE THAT HE USES TO DESCRIBE IMMIGRANTS AND HISPANICS DEHUMANIZES US.>>AND THE IDEA HE’S ONLY TALKING ABOUT THOSE WHO COME ILLEGALLY AND MURDERERS RAPISTS, NOT THE GOOD PEOPLE, YOU DON’T BUY IT?>>NO, CHRIS. ANYTIME YOU TALK ABOUT WHOLE GROUPS OF PEOPLE THAT WAY, YOU DO IT FOR A REASON. WHEN YOU STRIP PEOPLE FROM THEIR HUMANITY, THAT’S WHAT MAKES THAT KIND OF VIOLENCE IN THAT WALMART SO EASY FOR THE KILLER. YOU KNOW, I’VE BEEN SPENDING TIME WITH THE FAMILIES IN THE HOSPITAL. THE MINUTE THEY BEGIN TALKING ABOUT THE TERROR AND WHAT THAT — THAT TERRORIST DID, THE WAY THAT HE BEHAVED IN THE MOST COLD-BLOODED FASHION, IT’S BECAUSE HE DOESN’T SEE MEXICANS, HISPANICS — >>BROWN PEOPLE. THAT’S WHAT HE WAS LOOKING FOR. THAT’S WHY HE CAME HERE.>>HE DOESN’T SEE US AS HUMAN. THE PRESIDENT NEEDS TO TAKE BACK HIS WORDS. >>LET’S GO ONE STEP AS A TIME. YOU WANTED TO HAVE THIS CALL, THEY SAY, NO, IT’S TOO BUSY. YOU SAY I’M NOT GOING TO BE A PART OF THIS. ARE YOU OKAY WITH THAT? BECAUSE THE IDEA IS, I CAN’T BE JUST ABOUT YOU, IT’S GOT TO BE ABOUT YOUR CONSTITUENTS. YOU BELIEVE YOU’RE DOING THE RIGHT THING BY THEM?>>I DO. I DO. WE’RE GOING TO HAVE 22 FUNERALS, CHRIS. 22 FUNERALS IN THIS COMMUNITY. AND THE WORDS THAT HAVE DEHUMANIZED US ARE STILL HANGING OVER US. >>YOU NEED TO HEAR THIS PRESIDENT APOLOGIZE FOR THE THINGS HE’S SAID. >>AND TO ACKNOWLEDGE THAT THEY WERE WRONG. AND TO TAKE THEM BACK. >>IF HE DOESN’T?>>AS FAR AS I’M CONCERNED, HE SHOULD NOT BE HERE UNTIL HE DOES THAT.>>WHAT IF HE SAYS I’M HERE BECAUSE YOU GUYS ARE IN PAIN AND I’M YOUR PRESIDENT AND I’M SORRY THIS HAPPENED. >>WHAT CAUSED YOUR PAIN?>>A CRAZY HATEFUL PERSON WHO I’VE ALREADY SAID IS CRAZY IS HATEFUL. >>ABSOLUTELY. BUT THE WORDS THAT ARE USED BY THE PRESIDENT DRIVE MUCH OF THAT HATE. THERE’S A REASON HATE CRIMES HAVE INCREASED UNDER HIS TENURE.>>YOU PRESENT A CASE, OKAY. BUT FOR THE SAKE OF — NOT FOR THE SAKE OF ARGUMENT. THIS ISN’T A GAME. THIS IS NOT LIKE SOME RHETORICAL FLOURISH. IN THE INTEREST OF HEALING AND GETTING TO A BETTER PLACE, WHAT IF HE COMES TOMORROW AND DOESN’T SAY WHAT YOU WANT HIM TO HEAR. WE’VE NEVER HEARD THE PRESIDENT APOLOGIZE FOR ANYTHING BEFORE. BUT LET’S SAY HE DOES PROVIDE COMFORT AND HE SAYS I WILL DO BETTER AND I WILL HAVE PEOPLE BE BETTER, I KNOW IT’S GOING TO SOUND HAOLLOW, BUT MIGHT IT BE STEP IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION. >>I’M OPEN TO ANY STEP. THAT DOESN’T MEAN THAT — FROM MY VIEW, THAT HE SHOULD COME INTO A COMMUNITY WHERE HE PAINTED A TARGET ON OUR BACK. HE NEEDS TO PEEL THE TARGET OFF. WE WERE TOLD BY LAW ENFORCEMENT, BE CAREFUL, BE VIGILANT, THERE MAY BE COPY CAT ATTACKS.>>IT IS CONTAGIOUS. >>YES. AS THE MOST POWERFUL VOICE IN THE COUNTRY, HE NEEDS TO STAND UP AND SAY I WAS WRONG. THOSE WORDS ARE WRONG. AND EVERY ONE OF THESE PEOPLE IS WORTHY AND EQUAL OF OUR ADMIRATION AND OF GRACE AND OF OUR COMPASSION. THEY ARE NO DIFFERENT REGARDLESS OF THE COLOR OF THEIR SKIN. AND I WAS WRONG TO MAKE THEM DIFFERENT. THAT’S WHAT HE NEEDS TO SAY. >>ANYBODY IN THE WHITE HOUSE GIVE YOU ANY INDICATION THAT THEY UNDERSTAND THE MESSAGE?>>I DON’T KNOW THAT THEY CARE.>>THAT’S A HARSH THING TO SAY. >>THAT’S — IN YOU’RE TOO BUSY TO HAVE A TELEPHONE CONVERSATION WITH A LEADER IN THE COMMUNITY WHO HAS ASKED FOR THAT CONVERSATION, HE CALLED OTHER ELECTED OFFICIALS HERE, THE MEDIA HAS REPORTED IT. SO HE’S — HE HAD NOTHING ON HIS SCHEDULE TODAY. TEN MINUTES. TEN MINUTES. AND I’M NOT SAYING THAT HE HAD TO TALK TO ME. I WANTED HIM TO HEAR WHAT IS HAPPENING. IF HE WERE TO WALK THROUGH ALL OF THIS PAIN, THIS SEA OF BEAUTIFUL HUMANITY THAT IS SUFFERING AND IS IN PAIN, MAYBE IT WOULD OPEN UP THE COMPASSION IN HIS HEART AND HE NEEDS TO FEEL COMPASSION.>>LISTEN, THE — THE ONLY THING THAT YOU HAVE TO HOPE HERE IS THAT — I DON’T KNOW HOW YOU CAN IN THIS SITUATION. I’VE NEVER HAD A COMMUNITY — I’VE BEEN ALL OVER THIS COUNTRY SEEING THIS TYPE OF VICTIMIZATION. NOT ALWAYS WHITE NATIONALISM. BUT SOME TYPE OF MASS SHOOTING. I’VE NEVER SEEN PEOPLE VICTIMIZED IN THE WAY THIS COMMUNITY HAS BEEN. NOT ACTING LIKE VICTIMS. I MUST HAVE HUGGED 1,000 PEOPLE HERE. AND THE CONSISTENT MESSAGE IS, THEY’RE TALKING TO US TO GIVE A MESSAGE TO HIM EVEN THOUGH HE’S THEIR PRESIDENT. AND IT SEEMS ODD LIKE I’M IN ANOTHER COUNTRY. THEY FEEL THIS DISLOCATION. I ALWAYS BET ON THE OPTIMISM OF IT. YOU’RE NO FOOL. YOU SEE WHAT I DO EVERY NIGHT. IF HE CAN HAVE THESE PEOPLE FEEL LIKE THEY BELONG, THAT MIGHT HAVE AN UNINTENDED POSITIVE AFFECT THAT WE COULD ALL USE. >>WE COULD USE HEALING THIS IN COUNTRY. IT’S DIVIDED. I’VE SAID BEFORE, WE — EL PASO IS AT THE UNFORTUNATE INTERSECTION OF THE GUN VIOLENCE EPIDEMIC AND THE HATE EPIDEMIC. THAT’S WHAT HAPPENED HERE. >>IT IS THE DESTINY OF THIS PLACE, THOUGH, RIGHT? YOU TAKE THE NAME EL PASO FROM THE NAME OF THE PASSAGE, THE PASSAGE NORTH. THIS IS A PASSAGEWAY THAT THIS WHOLE COUNTRY IS GOING THROUGH. THERE’S SO MUCH PAIN INVOLVED IN IT FOR THE PEOPLE WHO ARE STRUGGLING TO BE HERE, STRUGGLING TO REMAIN, AND STRUGGLING TO ESTABLISH THEMSELVES AND ESTABLISH THAT THEY BELONG. YOU GOT TO HOPE FOR GOOD THINGS. YOU WERE RIGHT TO MAKE THE ARGUMENT — >>AND YOU KNOW WHAT, CHRIS, I GOT TO STAND UP FOR MY COMMUNITY. >>100%. >>I GOT TO STAND UP FOR THE PEOPLE WHO ARE WEEPING AND IN PAIN AND STRUGGLING. THIS BEAUTIFUL COMMUNITY, EVERYBODY THAT I TALKED TO, FROM THE CAMERA CREWS TO THE PRODUCERS HAVE EXPRESSED HOW INCREDIBLE WE ARE. WE ARE. AND SO HUMBLE AND SO UNDESERVING OF THIS VIOLENCE. BUT UNTIL WE’VE REALIZED THE POWER OF WORDS AND THE HARM THAT THEY CAN DO, WE WON’T HAVE CHANGE. SO IF WE ARE TO HAVE CHANGE, IF WE ARE TO HAVE HEALING, IF WE ARE GOING TO USE THIS AS A TURNING POINT, AND I HOPE TO GOD IT’S A TURNING POINT FOR ALL OF US. HE HAS TO BE A PART OF IT.>>ESPECIALLY COMING FROM A PRESIDENT, THE POWER OF WORDS. WE LOST TONY MORRISON, AND ONE OF HER MANY, MANY AMAZING THOUGHTS WAS THAT LANGUAGE ALONE CAN PROTECT US FROM SCARY PLACES, LANGUAGE ALONE CAN BE A MEDITATION AND CERTAINLY WE NEED THE POWER OF THE RIGHT WORDS FROM THE RIGHT WORDS FROM THE RIGHT PEOPLE RIGHT NOW. THANK YOU FOR MAKING A CASE FOR YOUR PEOPLE. I KNOW THEY APPRECIATE YOUR PRESENCE SO, SO MUCH. THANK YOU SO MUCH. LOVE YOUR T-SHIRT. >>THANK YOU. THE MONEY FOR THESE T-SHIRTS GOES TO HELP THE VICTIMS’ FAMILIES. ROSE, MY PRODUCER PICKED THIS UP FOR ME. AND IT COULDN’T BE A MORE APT DESCRIPTION OF THIS PLACE.>>ONE MORE THING, WE’RE HAVING A RALLY TOMORROW. AS THE PRESIDENT DOES HIS THING, THE COMMUNITY IS GOING TO COME TOGETHER TOMORROW, 12:30, WASHINGTON PARK IN ORDER TO DENOUNCE HATE, REJECT BIGOTRY AND EMBRACE ONE ANOTHER. >>PUSH THE POSITIVITY AND GOOD LUCK. BE WELL. >>>THESE ARE TOUGH CONVERSATIONS. BUT THAT’S THE REALITY AND IF YOU AVOID THE CONVERSATION, THEN HOW CAN YOU SEEK ANY PROGRESS. HOW CAN YOU HOPE ANYTHING CAN GET BETTER. AND SIMILARLY WE GOT TO LOOK AT THIS WHITE NATIONALIST VIOLENCE IN THAT WAY TOO. WE’RE GETTING KILLED FROM WITHIN. WE DON’T EVEN KNOW WHO THESE PEOPLE ARE. WE DON’T UNDERSTAND WHERE THEY MEET. OUR INVESTIGATORS HAVEN’T BEEN GIVEN THE RESOURCES TO GET INTO THIS. THEY’RE ONLY DEALING WITH ISLAMIST EXTREMISM. THIS IS ALL NEW FOR THEM. WE’RE GOING TO TALK WITH SOMEBODY, HE KNOWS THE IDEOLOGY BECAUSE HE BELIEVED IN THE IDEOLOGY. AND HE’S GOING TO TELL YOU THE KINDS OF WORDS THAT S. >>>AFTER THE ATTACK BEHIND ME, AUTHORIZED POINTED TO THE EL PASO SUSPECT’S ONLIRAMBLINGS THE WAS WHITE SUPREMACY. WE’RE TALKING ABOUT RACE-BASED BIGOTRY IN THE EXTREME AND ACTED UPON AS FURTHERAN OF E OF AN AGENDA. WHAT I WANT TO FOCUS ON IS TALKING TO SOMEBODY WHO UNDERSTANDS THAT MENTALITY. LET’S MOVE UP THE DISCUSSION HERE AND GET WITH CHRISTIAN. NOW IT’S — I’VE HAD YOU ON BEFORE AND UNFORTUNATELY WE NEED YOU NOW MORE THAN EVER. CHRISTIAN, YOU WERE IN THAT WORLD. YOU GOT OUT OF IT. THE RELEVANT PART OF THE STORY IS TO UNDERSTAND WHAT’S GOING ON IN THAT COMMUNITY. WHY ARE WE SEEING AN UPTICK NOT JUST IN MURDERS, BUT ACTIVITY, LOCAL ORGANIZING, ONLINE CHAT GROUPS. WHAT IS GOING ONTO YOUR UNDERSTANDING?>>I THINK WE HAVE A SIGNIFICANT PART OF THE AMERICAN POPULATION WHO IS FEELING LIKE AN EQUALIZATION, IT’S STARTING TO FEEL LIKE OPPRESSION TO THEM. THEY’RE WRONG. THERE IS NO GREAT REPLACEMENT. THERE IS NO WHITE GENOCIDE HAPPENING. THESE ARE ALL TROPES THAT HAVE BEEN HAPPENING FOR CENTURIES. AND THEY’RE KEYING IN ON THESE THINGS NOW BECAUSE OF THE WORDS, YOU KNOW, IN PART FROM A PRESIDENT WHO HAS A RESPONSIBILITY TO MEASURE HIS WORDS IN THESE CASES. BECAUSE WE’VE SEEN — >>DO YOU BELIEVE WHAT HE SAYS RESONATES WITH THEM? BECAUSE HIS DEFENDERS WILL SAY, NO, THEY HATE HIM. THEY BELIEVE HE’S NOT FOR THE WHITE COMMUNITY ENOUGH. DO YOU BELIEVE THAT?>>LISTEN, CHRIS, I’M INTIMATE WITH WORDS LIKE THE ONES THAT THE PRESIDENT USED. 30 YEARS AGO, I WROTE LYRICS THAT I PUT OUT INTO THE WORLD. I GOT OUT 23 YEARS AGO. IN 2015, THOSE LYRICS RESURFACED IN A POST OF DYLANN ROOF. I UNDERSTAND THE RESPONSIBILITY THAT WE HAVE FOR THOSE WORDS. WE NEED ACTION. AN APOLOGY JUST ISN’T GOOD ENOUGH.>>IN TERMS OF WHO IS SUSCEPTIBLE, YOUR NAME IS ITALIAN. YOU ARE NOT SOME WASPY GUY FROM THE MIDWEST. HOW DID YOU GET SUCKED IN?>>I THINK EVERYBODY IS SUSCEPTIBLE BECAUSE WE’RE LIVING IN A TIME OF UNCERTAINTY RIGHT NOW AND THAT’S WHEN EXTREMISM FLOURISHES. I WAS A 17-YEAR-OLD KID WHEN IT RECRUITED. I WAS LONELY. THERE WERE ALL SORTS OF ISSUES THAT DETOURED ME ONTO THE PATH OF EXTREMISM. WE’RE LIVING IN A TIME RIGHT NOW WHEN THERE’S A LOT OF UNCERTAINTY WITH OUR POPULATION AND SOMETIMES THESE NARRATIVES TO PEOPLE WHO FEEL DESPERATE SEEM LIKE A LOTTERY TICKET. WHEN I SEE THEM — >>THE IDEA OF THE PARENTS — ABOUT THE GUY HERE AT THE WALMART, THEY SAID WE DIDN’T KNOW, CHRISTIAN. DO YOU BELIEVE THAT?>>I THINK THAT THEY PROBABLY DIDN’T KNOW. I THINK MOST PEOPLE AREN’T REALLY UP ON WHAT TO LOOK FOR. BUT IT’S PRETTY SIMPLE. IT’S THE SAME THINGS THAT WE NOTICE WHEN PEOPLE GET INTO GANGS OR DRUGS OR END UP IN CRIME. IT’S THE — ALIENATION. IT’S THE SAME EXTREMIST BEHAVIORS THAT INDICATE THAT SOMEBODY MIGHT GO TOWARD EXTREMISM. IDEOLOGY IS THE FINAL COMPONENT THAT INTERCEPTS SOMEBODY THAT GIVES THEM THE REASON TO GO OUT AND BE ANGRY TOWARDS OTHER PEOPLE. >>RIGHT. CHRISTIAN, I CUT YOU OFF. MAKE THAT POINT ABOUT WHEN THEY GO ALL IN LIKE THIS. OBVIOUSLY THE CONCENTRATION ON EFFORT RIGHT NOW IS TREATING THIS AS TERRORISM WHEN THEY ACT ON IN FURTHERING A POLITICAL AGENDA. >>IT’S TERRORISM. IT’S TRANCE NATIONAL TERRORISM. SINCE THE ’80s, THIS HAS BEEN CONNECTED TO PLACES LIKE EUROPE AND EASTERN EUROPE. NOW THE INTERNET HAS CHANGED THE GAME. I REALLY THINK THAT WE NEED TO START LOOKING THIS — FROM A TRANS NATIONAL PERSPECTIVE BECAUSE WE’VE GOT AMERICANS GOING OVER TO PLACES LIKE THE UKRAINE AND RUSSIA TO TRAIN IN PARAMILITARY CAMPS AND COME BACK TO CHARLOTTESVILLE AND TAKE IT OUT ON ACTIVISTS THERE. THIS IS A REAL PROBLEM. >>CHRISTIAN, THERE’S NO — 100% IT IS. WE GOT TO START TAKING IT AS ONE. AND I’M GOING TO BE LEANING ON YOU GOING FORWARD. AND I APPRECIATE YOU REFLECTING ON WHAT YOU DID IN THE PAST. YOU’RE MAKING A POSITIVE DIFFERENCE. THANK YOU FOR THAT. >>THANKS, CHRIS. >>>LET’S BOUNCE BACK AND FORTH BETWEEN EL PASO AND DAYTON. DAYTON’S MAYOR HAD SOME POINTED WORDS FOR THE PRESIDENT. CAN HE UNITE US IN THIS TIME OF GRIEF? THE QUESTION IS, YES, BUT IT’S ABOUT HOW GENUINE IT IS AND THAT NOT EVERYBODY IS GOING TO BE HAPPY TO SEE PRESIDENT TRUMP HERE IN EL PASO OR IN DAYTON TOMORROW, BUT HEAVY IS THE HEAD THAT WEARS THE CROWN. THE DEMOCRAT MAYOR IN DAYTON SAYS SHE’S GOING TO WELCOME THE PRESIDENT, QUOTE, IN HER OFFICIAL CAPACITY AS MAYOR, BUT SHE DID HAVE A CAVEAT AND HERE IT IS.>>HE’S MADE THIS BED AND HE’S GOT TO LIE IN IT. HE HASN’T — HIS RHETORIC HAS BEEN PAINFUL FOR MANY IN OUR COMMUNITY AND I THINK THAT PEOPLE SHOULD STAND UP AND SAY THEY’RE NOT HAPPY THAT HE’S COMING. >>ALL RIGHT. LET’S GET INTO THE GREAT DEBATE. PAT, I’LL START WITH YOU. THE IDEA OF THE PRESIDENT COMING TO EITHER OF THESE PLACES AND SAYING, HEY, I DIDN’T EVER SAY ANYTHING LIKE THAT. I SHOULDN’T BE BLAMED FOR ANY OF THIS. IF THAT’S REMOTELY IN HIS MIND SET OF WHAT SHOULD BE IN THE MESSAGING, HE SHOULDN’T COME, RIGHT?>>I’M NOT HEARING YOU, CHRIS.>>UH-OH. CAN YOU HEAR ME?>>I CAN HEAR YOU. >>GOOD, THE IDEA OF THE PRESIDENT AND WHAT HIS MESSAGE — >>I CAN HEAR YOU, I CAN’T HEAR CHRIS. NOW I CAN. >>WE’RE GOING TO — PATRICK, YOU GOT ME?>>I GOT YOU NOW, CHRIS.>>ALL RIGHT. GOOD. THE IDEA OF THE PRESIDENT COMING TO EITHER OF THESE PLACES TOMORROW AND SAYING I DIDN’T DO ANY OF THIS. THIS ISN’T ABOUT ME. DAMN THOSE DEMOCRATS, DAMN THE FAKE NEWS. THAT CANNOT BE IN THE REPMESSAG TOMORROW, IS THAT FAIR. >>I THINK THAT’S FAIR. WHETHER PRESIDENT TRUMP SAYS SOMETHING THAT IS PROVOCATIVE, HE HAS HELD TO A HIGHER STANDARD OF PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. THAT’S A FAIR THING TO DO. BUT I THINK WE HAVE TO LOOK AT ALL OF OUR LEADERS. THE PRESIDENT SAYS SOMETHING, THE PHYSICS OF POLITICS IS ONE SIDE SAYS SOMETHING, THE OTHER SIDE REACTS AND ALL OF THIS STUFF IS NOT HELPFUL, CHRIS. THIS IS DRIVING OUR NATION TO A PLACE WHERE WE CAN NO LONGER HAVE A THOUGHTFUL DISCUSSION ABOUT THIS KIND OF TRAGEDY AND WHAT LEADS TO IT. IT’S GOT TO STOP. TOMORROW IS NOT THE PLACE FOR THAT TO HAPPEN, AND I’M ONE THAT THE PRESIDENT CAN BRING SOME HEALING WITH HIM. IT’S GOING TO TAKE TWO TO TANGO, CHRIS. THIS IS SADLY POLITICS.>>ALL RIGHT. LET ME PLAY THAT METAPHOR THAT PATRICK HAS. WHO’S DRIVING WHAT SITUATION? IT’S TRUE. A LOT OF DIFFERENT FACTORS DRIVE IT, BUT THE PRESIDENT SITTING BEHIND THE WHEEL AND HE’S GOT HIS FOOT ON THE GAS, SO WHAT DO YOU EXPECT TOMORROW?>>I EXPECT THE PRESIDENT TO BE THE PRESIDENT. HE’S GOING TO BE THE RACIST IN CHIEF. I WANT HIM TO GO TO MAR-A-LAGO, HAVE A ROBE, DRINK A COKE, PUT AWAY YOUR TWITTER AND WATCH FOX NEWS. BECAUSE THIS IS A PRESIDENT WHO COULDN’T BE BOTHERED ON SUNDAY AS A NATION WAS MOURNING TWO MARKS TO ACTUALLY GO TO EL PASO, TO GO TO DAYTON. WHAT DID HE DO? HE GOLFED. THE NEXT DAY ON MONDAY, HE HAD ONE JOB, READ THE TELEPROMPTER. HE MESSED IT UP. HE COULDN’T EVEN SAY THE CITY PROPERLY. MAYBE HE’LL LAND IN TOLEDO AND NOT DAYTON. I WANT HIM TO BRING A $470,000 CHECK, BECAUSE HE OWE IT IS COMMUNITY MONEY, AND I WANT HIM TO SAY, GUESS WHAT, THERE’S A GUN CONTROL BILL, I WANT TO TELL SENATOR MITCH McCONNELL TO GET THAT BILL IN SENATE AND I WANT TO PRESSURE THESE REPUBLICANS TO PASS THIS BRRACKGROUND CHECK. AND THE THIRD THING I WOULD DO IS APOLOGIZE TO THAT COMMUNITY. I’M SORRY I FAILED YOU. I PROMOTED WHITE SUPREMACIST TALKING POINTS. FORGIVE ME. I’M HEAR, I’M TRYING TO BE A GOOD PRESIDENT NOW. HOW CAN I HELP YOU? I WOULD LIKE AN APOLOGY. WE’RE NEVER GOING TO GET IT.>>PATRICK, IS THERE ANYTHING LIKE THOSE THREE POINTS YOU THINK WE’LL HEAR?>>THAT’S WISHFUL THINKING ON HIS PART. THAT’S NOT GOING TO HAPPEN. WHAT I TRIED TO SAY IN MY OPENING REMARKS TO YOU, CHRIS, I THINK THERE’S PLENTY OF ANGER AND RHETORIC, SOARING RHETORIC TO GO AROUND HERE. THE PRESIDENT’S JOB IS TO GO THERE TOMORROW TO REACH OUT TO THE PEOPLE WHO WANT TO TALK TO HIM. IF PEOPLE IN THOSE PLACES DON’T WANT TO SEE THE PRESIDENT, THEY WANT TO PROTEST, THAT’S UP TO THEM. BUT THE PRESIDENT WILL GO THERE TOMORROW, I THINK, TO AT LEAST TRY TO ENGAGE, TALK TO FAMILIES, SURVIVORS, FIRST RESPONDERS, THAT’S HIS JOB. LET’S SEE HOW PRESIDENTIAL THE PRESIDENT ACTS TOMORROW. HE DESERVES AN OPPORTUNITY TO DO THAT. WE SHOULD EXPECT NOTHING LESS.>>PATRICK, HERE’S THE PROBLEM, I TOTALLY AGREE WITH THE IDEA OF EVERYBODY DOING THEIR BEST. BUT YOU SEEM TO BE IGNORING HIS OUTSIZED ROLE IN CREATING THE NEGATIVITY AND TOXICITY IN THIS DYNAMIC. IT WASN’T DEMOCRATS SAYING BAD THINGS ABOUT LATINOS AND THEN HIM RAMPING IT UP, PATRICK. I DON’T KNOW WHY YOU’RE SHAKING YOUR HEAD. I COULD GIVE YOU 15 MINUTES OF COMMENTS FROM HIM WHERE THE PEOPLE IN THIS COMMUNITY HAVE REMEMBERED EVERY DAMN ONE OF THEM. AND FOR SOME REASON, THEY TOOK THEM ALL PERSONALLY AND THEY DIDN’T SEE IT AS A BATTLE BETWEEN LEFT AND RIGHT. THEY SAW IT AS THEIR PRESIDENT LOOKING AT THEM AND SAYING YOU’RE A BROWN MENACE AND WE SHOULD BE AFRAID OF YOU, WE SHOULD TAKE YOUR KIDS AND PUT THEM IN CAGES AND SCARE YOU BACK HOME. AND HOPEFULLY YOU WON’T COME BACK WHEN YOU SEE THE BIG WALL. THAT’S THE CHECK HIS MOUTH HAS WRITTEN. WHAT DOES HE DO WHEN HE GETS HERE? IGNORE IT?>>LISTEN, YOU AND I HAVE HAD THIS CONVERSATION BEFORE. THERE ARE MANY THINGS THAT DONALD TRUMP SAYS THAT ARE INDEFENSIBLE FROM MY PERSPECTIVE. WE’VE TALKED ABOUT OTHER THINGS HERE. SOME OF WHAT THE PRESIDENT SAYS, I WISH HE DIDN’T SAY. I WISH HE DIDN’T SAY IT IN THE WAY HE SAYS IT. THERE’S PLENTY OF RHETORIC COMING FROM THE OTHER SIDE AS WELL. AND I’M SORRY, I THINK THAT WHAT’S GOOD FOR THE GOOSE IS GOOD FOR THE GANDER HERE. AWARE HEARING DEMOCRATS TALKING ABOUT — AGAIN, THE POLITICS OF THIS IS DISGRACEFUL. WE GOT DIRECT MAIL PIECES GOING OUT AND RAISING MONEY FOR KAMALA HARRIS, BETO O’ROURKE COMPARING THE PRESIDENT TO NAZI GERMANY. NONE OF THIS IS HELPING THE SITUATION CHRIS.>>CHRIS, MAY I?>>THE POLITICS PART OF THIS — >>I HEAR YOU, PATRICK.>>IS DONALD TRUMP GOING TO TALK TO THE — >>TOMORROW IS A CHANCE. I’M GOING TO GIVE YOU THE FINAL WORD. DON’T FORGET THE OTHER TWO POINTS, HE SAID, THERE IS A GUN CONTROL BILL ON THERE THAT’S PRETTY REASONABLE AND A LOT — A FEW ARE STARTING TO BUBBLE UP AND SAYING, WE’RE NOT AGAINST THIS. THE PRESIDENT HAS SAID HE’S FOR MUCH OF WHAT’S IN THAT BILL BEFORE AND THERE’S NO REASON NOT TO TREAT THESE EXTREMISTS AS TERRORISTS. >>THREE QUICK POINTS. I’M COMING THERE, I’M GOING TO PASS GUN CONTROL. I’M COMING THERE AND PASS GUN CONTROL. NUMBER TWO, I APOLOGIZE FOR MAINSTREAMING WHITE SUPREMACIST TALKING POINTS. I’M GOING TO TACKLE THE TERROR THREAT IN AMERICA. BEC FORGIVE ME, FORGIVE ME FOR BEING A RACIST. FORGIVE ME FOR CALLING YOU INVADERS, RAPISTS. AND I’M GOING TO BE YOUR PRESIDENT AND I’M GOING TO FIGHT FOR YOU AND I’M GOING TRY MY BEST TO BE LESS RACIST BECAUSE LET’S BE HONEST, THAT’S THE FEATURE, NOT THE BOOK.>>THANK YOU FOR YOUR TAKE. PATRICK, I APPRECIATE YOU COMING ON THE SHOW AND MAKING THE CASE. ALL THREE OF US, LET’S HOPE WE’RE PLEASANTLY SURPRISED TOMORROW.>>>WHAT’S THE BIG DEAL NOW? ALL RIGHT. WHAT HAPPENS NEXT? WHY WOULD ANY OF YOU BELIEVE THAT ANYTHING CAN BE BETTER THAN THIS LAST FEW DAYS IF NOBODY DOES ANYTHING ANY DIFFERENT. WILL THERE BE CHANGE? WE’RE GOING TO BRING IN A REPUBLICAN, BECAUSE, REMEMBER, LOOK, I DON’T CARE WHAT KIND OF NUMBERS YOU HAVE IN CONGRESS, AS LONG AS YOU HAVE THAT FILIBUSTER IN THE SENATE, YOU NEED BOTH >>>ALL RIGHT. SO, LOOK, WE KNOW THAT PEOPLE ARE ON EDGE HERE AND THERE’S VERY RAW AND REAL EMOTION HERE AND IN DAYTON AND RIGHTLY SO. SHOULD THE PRESIDENT COME OR NOT? LOOK, HE’S COMING. AND YOU GOT TO HOPE THAT HE SAYS THE RIGHT THINGS AND HE DOESN’T SAY THE WRONG THINGS. THERE’S A BIGGER CONCERN. BECAUSE THIS CAN’T BE ABOUT THE PRESIDENT. IT HAS TO BE ABOUT CONGRESS AND WHAT CAN GET DONE. LET’S GET PERSPECTIVE FROM SOMEONE WHO SUPPORTS THE PRESIDENT, ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE AISLE. CONGRESSMAN SEAN DUFFY. THANK YOU FOR BEING ON THE SHOW.>>THANKS FOR HAVING ME ON. >>TWO THINGS, ONE, WHEN AN ORGANIZATION OR WHEN AN INDIVIDUAL ACTS AS AN EXTINCTION OF AN ORGANIZATION THROUGH VIOLENCE TO ADVANCE A POLITICAL AGENDA LIKE WE SAW AT THIS WALMART, MAYBE LIKE WE SAW IN DAYTON, THAT SHOULD BE TERRORISM AND YOU SHOULD EXPAND THE LAW AND THE RESOURCES TO ROOT OUT THESE POLITICAL EXTREMISTS AND HATERS WHEREVER THEY LIVE, WHEREVER THEY ARE, WHATEVER THEIR AFFILIATED WITH AND PUNISH THEM THE WAY YOU WOULD AN ISLAMIC EXTREMIST. >>AGREE. IT’S A GREAT POINT. I THINK IT’S IMPORTANT THAT WE LOOK AT THIS HOLISTICALLY. WE HAVE A SHOOTER GOING AFTER HISPANICS. MY WIFE IS HISPANIC. I HAVE HISPANIC CHILDREN. THIS IS HORRIBLE STUFF. HE WAS ALSO ANTI-CORPORATION, AND AN ENVIRONMENTALIST. AND IN DAYTON YOU HAD A SOCIALIST WHO’S A SUPPORTER OF DEMOCRATS AND ANTIFA. WE HAVE TO GET INTO WHAT’S INSPIRING TO TAKE UP ARMS AND KILL THEIR NEIGHBORS. AND PART OF IT IS A GUN CONVERSATION, BUT WE HAVE A MENTAL HEALTH CRISIS IN AMERICA AND WE DON’T HAVE ENOUGH TREATMENT — >>THIS IS NOT MENTAL HEALTH. >>IF YOU HAVE A PROBLEM — >>THIS GUY WASN’T CRAZY.>>I THINK HE WAS. DID YOU READ HIS MANIFESTO. >>HOLD ON A SECOND. I’M JUST USING — THIS WAS A BAD GUY. EVIL IS NOT SICKNESS. YOU AND I BOTH KNOW THIS. DON’T HIDE BEHIND THE MENTALLY ILL. THIS IS ABOUT HATE AND HAVING THE RESOURCES TO ROOT IT OUT AND THE WILL TO PUNISH IT, THE SAME WAY YOU WOULDN’T SAY A MUSLIM IS A MENTALLY ILL PERSON IF THEY HAD A TERRORIST ATTACK HERE. YOU WOULD SAY THEY’RE A BAD IMMUNE ISLAMIC EXTREMIST AND YOU WOULD WANT THEM PUNISHED. >>I AGREE WITH YOU ON THAT FRONT. IF WE HAVE A GROUP OF PEOPLE WHO ARE USING VIOLENCE TO PERPETUATE AN IDEOLOGY, WE SHOULD CALL THEM TERRORISTS, WE SHOULD GET THE RESOURCES TO THE FBI AND OUR LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICIALS AND WE SHOULD GO AFTER THEM. I AGREE WITH THAT. MY POINT WAS LARGER IN THE SENSE THAT I DO THINK YOU HAVE GREAT MENTAL ILLNESS IN THE COUNTRY. AND A LOT OF THESE PEOPLE ARE SICK. WE HAVE TO LOOK AT WHY ARE WE DESENSIZED TO ALL OF THIS VIOLENCE. AND I THINK GUNS ARE PART OF THE CONVERSATION. WE HAVE TO LOOK AT THE BILLIONS OF DOLLARS THAT HOLLYWOOD MAKES OFF OF VIOLENT MOVIES AND VIDEO GAMES — >>YOU CAN MOVIES HAS — YOU THINK THE MOVIES AND VIDEO GAMES HAVE AS MUCH TO DO WITH THIS PROBLEM AS THE ACCESS TO WEAPONS DO? THE ONLY METRIC WE HAVE THAT DISTINGUISHES US FROM OTHER CULTURES IS HOW MANY GUNS WE HAVE. 120 IS THE RATIO. THEY ALL HAVE VIDEO GAMES. THEY ALL HAVE VIOLENT MOVIES. IT’S THE GUNS. >>WHAT I ALSO SEE IS IF IT’S NOT GUNS, IT’S KNIVES, IT’S PRESSURE COOKERS, IT’S PLANES, IT’S FERTILIZER, IT’S TRUCKS. PEOPLE WHO ARE SICK AND WANT TO KILL — >>IT’S MOST OFTEN GUNS. >>I THINK WHAT — >>I KNOW, BUT IT’S MOST OFTEN GUNS AND I’M A GUN OWNER. IT’S NOT ABOUT ANTI-GUN. IT’S ABOUT BEING PROREASONABLE.>>AND I THINK YOU AND I CAN AGREE TO SAY LET’S WORK ON MENTAL HEALTH. LET’S LOOK AT FIREARMS AND SAY, HOW DO WE HAVE RED FLAG LAWS, HOW DO WE HAVE APPROPRIATE BACKGROUND CHECKS TO MAKE SURE THAT PEOPLE LIKE THE SHOOTER IN EL PASO AND DAYTON CAN’T GET GUNS AND PROTECT LAW-ABIDING CITIZENS. I THINK THAT’S POSSIBLE. BUT WE CAN’T GO INTO PARTISAN RHETORIC. IT’S THE SHOOTER ON A BASEBALL FIELD AND A BERNIE SANDERS SUPPORTER WHO SHOT STEVE SCALISE. THAT’S THE HACKSMANSHIP THAT DIVIDES US. WHAT’S A HOLISTIC APPROACH. IF WE DO THAT, I THINK BOTH SIDES CAN SEE THROW THE PARTISAN CLOUD AND COME TO A RESOLUTION THAT CAN STOP THESE KILLINGS — >>I HEAR YOU, CONGRESSMAN, AND I LIKE THE VIBE. I LIKE THE VIBE. I’M NOT SAYING IT’S THE ONLY ANSWER. I THINK THEY’RE COMMON SENSE THINGS AND THE ONLY OUTLYING METRIC IS THE GUNS. WHEN — WE’RE NOT GOING TO TAKE THAT WITH US WHEN WE GO TO RANGE. THAT’S ALL I’M SAYING. START SMALL. YOU GUYS DON’T DEAL WITH BIG THINGS WELL. >>IF YOU DON’T — YOU CAN ADMIT — WE HAVE GUNS SINCE OUR FOUNDING AND WE’VE HAD A SEMIAUTOMATIC WEAPONS SINCE THE ’50s AND THESE THINGS WEREN’T HAPPENING. WHAT HAS CHANGED IN THE LAST 20 YEARS THAT HAS CAUSED THIS PROBLEM IN OUR COUNTRY OF MASS KILLINGS. SOMETHING IS GOING ON IN OUR CULTURE AND THAT’S A HARD CONVERSATION. AND I DON’T KNOW WHAT THE ANSWER IS. IF WE DON’T HAVE THAT CONVERSATION, I THINK YOU’RE TRYING TO DEAL WITH A SYMPTOM AND WE’RE NOT DEALING WITH THE ROOT CAUSE OF WHY PEOPLE ARE SO ANGRY. YOUNG MEN ARE SO ANGRY IN AMERICA WHERE THEY WILL PICK UP A GUN AND KILL PEOPLE. WE HAVE TO FIND THE ANSWER TO THAT. IT’S GOT TO BE HOLISTIC. IF WE LOOK AT ONE POINT, MY CONSTITUENTS, THEY LOVE THEIR GUNS, THEY HATE WHAT HAPPENED IN EL PASO. THEY HATE WHAT HAPPENED IN DAYTON. THEIR HEARTS BREAK AND THEY WANT US TO FIND A HOLISTIC SOLUTION. IF IT’S HOLISTIC, WHAT YOU CAN DO IS SAYING WE’RE NOT JUST GOING AFTER GUNS, WE’RE GOING AFTER THIS EPIDEMIC AND IT’S GOING TO BE CROSS THE BOARD. THAT’S HOW YOU GET PEOPLE TO BUY INTO THAT SOLUTION. >>I’M FINE WITH THAT. I’M FINE WITH THAT. I’M FINE WITH THAT BECAUSE I’M NOT LEFT OR RIGHT. I’M ABOUT REASONABLE. I’M SAYING THAT NOTHING IS HAPPENING. I ENCOURAGE THIS CONVERSATION. YOU WANT TO BRING UP STUFF ON THE FLOOR, YOU WANT ME TO FRONT RUN IT I’M THERE. YOU GET COSPONSORS, YOU’LL GET EVEN MORE TIME. I BELIEVE IT’S PAST TIME. OUR KIDS ARE GROWING UP, SEAN, WE’RE PUTTING THEM IN A WORLD WHERE THERE’S A GOOD CHANCE THAT SOMETHING BAD WILL HAPPEN TO THEM AS SOMETHING GOOD. AND THAT’S CRAZY. I APPRECIATE YOU HAVING THIS CONVERSATION ESPECIALLY DURING A TOUGH TIME. >>THANK YOU, CHRIS. HAVE A GOOD NIGHT.>>ALWAYS. BE WELL. >>>THIS IS GOING TO HAPPEN. I BELIEVE YOU GOT TO PROVOKE THESE CONVERSATIONS. I JUST DO. YOU GOT TO BRING PEOPLE OUT OF THEIR SILOS. TOUGH LOOK AT THE FACTS. THIS LEFT/RIGHT THING. I NEVER THOUGHT I WOULD SEE POLITICIANS SAYING WHICH EXTREMISTS BELONG TO THEM. YOU ALSO HAVE TO LOOK AT THE ANTIFA. PUT THEM ALL IN ONE BARREL OF ANIMALS, HAVE THE RESOURCES AND THE WILL TO PUNISH THEM WHEN THEY DO THINGS LIKE THIS AND YOU DON’T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT WHAT SIDE THEY’RE ON. THE PRESIDENT IS COMING TOMORROW. WHAT SHOULD HE DO, WHAT >>>LET’S TRY SOMETHING TONIGHT. WE TRY NOT TO BE GLIB. I DON’T GIVE ADVICE ESPECIALLY NOT TO A PRESIDENT. TOMORROW MATTERS TOO MUCH TO NOT MOVE FORWARD TOGETHER. HERE’S SOME SUGGESTIONS TO BEING ON THE GROUND HERE. IF YOU’RE COMING TOMORROW, MR. PRESIDENT, YOU SHOULD APOLOGIZE FOR THIS.>>THEY’RE BRINGING DRUGS, CRIME, THEY’RE RAPISTS. >>MANY CRIMINALS IN THAT CARAVAN. >>YOU LOOK AT WHAT’S MARCHING UP THAT’S AN INVASION.>>THEY GOT A LOT OF ROUGH PEOPLE IN THE CARAVANS. THEY ARE NOT ANGELS.>>NOW HERE’S WHY. TWO REASONS. ONE, DHS AND EN YOU RECOGNIZE THAT WAS A FALSE BROWN MENACE DEPICTION. THEY WITH MOSTLY KIDS AND THE PEOPLE WITH THEM. IT WASN’T SOME DEMON HORDE COMING HERE. IT WASN’T AN INVASION. AND TWO THEY HEARD YOU. IT HURT. THEY KNEW YOU WERE DEM NIZING THEM AS A DEMAGOGUE. THERE’S CHANCE FOR HEALING. YOU CRACKED THE DOOR OPEN TO THE POSSIBILITY OF CHANGE WHEN YOU SAID THIS. >>IN ONE VOICE OUR NATION MUST CONDEMN RACISM, BIG TRIG, AND WHITE SUPREMACY.>>HERE’S THE SECOND REASON. THAT I CAN EXPLAIN MADE ME BETTER THAN ANYBODY ELSE IN MY POSITION. THESE PEOPLE HERE ARE VERY SIMILAR TO THE PEOPLE WHERE WE GREW UP IN QUEENS. ETHNIC WHO ARE LONG ON PRIDE AND FEEL VERY, VERY DEEPLY. I HAVE NEVER HAD PEOPLE IN A VICTIMIZED COMMUNITY THE WAY IT HAPPENED HERE BE SO INTENT ON REACHING OUT AND PUTTING THEIR ARMS AROUND YOU. YOU REMEMBER IN OUR NEIGHBORHOOD WHEN PEOPLE USED TO PAINT ROCKS AND PUT RELIGIOUS ICONS ON THEM AND MESSAGES. LOOK ONE A WOMAN GAVE ME. SHE SAW ME ON TV AND KNEW PEOPLE LOST AT WALGREENS. SHE PAINTED THE MOTHER OF MERCY ON A ROCK AND CAME HERE AND GAVE IT TO ME. THIS IS WHO THESE PEOPLE ARE. THE SAME WAY JUST LIKE WHERE WE CAME UP, MR. PRESIDENT. WHEN THEY HURT. IT DOESN’T GO AWAY. RESPECT IS EVERYTHING. DO NOT CONFUSE A LACK OF FORMAL EDUCATION AND SOPHISTICATION FOR NOT BEING SMART. MANY FEEL YOU DON’T CARE ABOUT THEM. 19 HOURS AFTER YOU MADE THE CALL TO COME TOGETHER AND SPEAK AS ONE. YOU WENT BACK TO PETTY PROTECTION FOR YOURSELF. USELESS TWEETS ABOUT YOUR FEELINGS. YOU NEED TO BE ABOUT THEIR FEELINGS. DO NOT CALL YOURSELF LEAST RACIST. SAY THAT YOU WILL GO AFTER RACISTS AND MAKE WHITE NATIONALISTS AND ANY EXTREMIST FROM THE ANY GROUP WHO USES VIOLENCE FOR THEIR AGENDA THEY ARE TERRORISTS AND YOU WILL TREAT THEM. YOU KNOW THIS ISN’T A BOTH SIDES SITUATION. THERE’S NO ADVANTAGE TO GIVING COVER TO THIS GUY. ANY GROUP THAT MOTIVATES A POLITICAL AGENDA THROUGH VIOLENCE COMMITS TERRORISM. DON’T FORGET TO CALL OUT THIS WHITE BIGOT WHO DID THIS. THEY NEED TO HEAR YOU REJECT HIM SPECIFICALLY. AS YOU HAVE TALKED ABOUT THEM SPECIFICALLY AND EVERYONE ELSE WHO FEELS YOUR WRATH. TALK ABOUT THEM AS YOU DO MUSLIM TERRORISTS. DON’T BE THAT UGLY. BE THAT SPECIFIC. THEY’RE THE SAME ANIMAL. DON’T BE PROMPTER PRESIDENT. BE THE RALLY PRESIDENT. CALL ON THE PEOPLE WAITING ON YOU IN CONGRESS TO DO YOUR BIDDING AND HOLD A VOTE ON BACKGROUND CHECKS AND REASONABLE CHANGE. YOU CAN DO IT. THIS COUNTRY NEEDS YOU TO. WE’LL TAKE A BREAK. WHEN WE COME BACK WE’LL BRING IN DON LEMON AND TALK ABOUT THE FUTURE. THESE ARE THESE PEOPLE AND THIS IS WHO WE HAVE TO REMEMBER WITH THE PRESIDENT TOMORROW.>>>ALL RIGHT. QUICK NOTICE. TOMORROW WE’LL USE OUR TIME FOR A SPECIAL REASON. WE’LL HAVE A NATIONAL CONVERSATION ABOUT WHAT WE CAN DO TO MAKE THINGS BETTER. A CUOMO “PRIME TIME” TOWN HALL. AMERICA UNDER ASSAULT. THE GUN CRISIS. WE’LL HAVE A RANGE OF OPINIONS. ONE SIDE BEING HEARD IS NOT ENOUGH. WE HAVE TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO WORK TOGETHER. REGULAR TIME. WE’LL HAVE SURVIVORS AND POLICY MAKERS AND LEADERS. IN ALL DIFFERENT AREAS TO MAKE A CHANGE. IT’S BEEN TOO LONG ALREADY. LET’S BRING IN D. LEMON. THEY LOVE YOU HERE IN EL PASO. I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT. IT’S A BRIGHT SPOT IN BEING HERE. OTHER THAN LOVE OF COMMUNITY, THE LOVE THEY HAVE FOR YOU. I TAKE AS AN OBVIOUS MANIFESTATION OF THEM BEING STRESSED. >>WHAT’D THE TAXI DRIVER CALL YOU THE OTHER DAY IN DETROIT?>>CHRIS LEMON. HE WAS STRESSED. THEY’RE ON EDGE HERE. I’M USING COMEDY TO LIGHTEN IT UP. THERE’S AN OPPORTUNITY. IF THE PRESIDENT COMES HERE TOMORROW AND ACTS LIKE A PRESIDENT, PEOPLE WILL BE SURPRISED. IT WILL BE A GOOD THING. >>SMILE SOMETIMES. BUT I CAN’T IMAGINE WHAT THE FOLKS ARE GOING THROUGH. AS MANY TIMES AS WE COVER IT IT’S EVERY PEEEXPERIENCE IS UNI. EVERYONE WHO DIED OR INJURED. THEY WEREN’T SUPPOSED TO BE. I’M EXCITED WE’RE DOING THIS TOWN HALL AND YOU’RE HOSTING IT. AND I HOPE IT DOES MAKE A DIFFERENCE. I’M USUALLY THE PESSIMIST AMONG THE TWO OF US. I USED TO BE AN OPTIMIST. YOU’RE THE WHO IS OPTIMIST. YOU HOPE THIS TIME IT WILL BE DIFFERENT. MAYBE IT WILL. I GET THE FEELING IT COULD BE. AT LEAST I HOPE IT WILL BE. I CAN’T WAIT TO SEE WHAT YOU WITH THE TOWN HALL TOMORROW. >>IT’S COMMON SENSE THINGS THEY CAN DO. COMING TOGETHER AGAINST HATE AND STOP THIS. IF YOU WANT TO TALK ABOUT RIGHT

  1. When he comes, hope nobody shows up…👍
    Or turn their backs…

    You don't need a "microscope" to see his hate…

  2. I think. This man is confusing he wishy washy to me and the only side he's on is himself clarify your self we will not listen to fake news we went to. College too. All americans have been educated we are here united as one Nation Under God

  3. There is no excuse for Trump’s behavior. He has to accept responsibility for his actions. But wait, he’s never had to do that!

  4. I agree with her ! …. Trump is escalating deaths , from his hate rhetoric ! Trump won't change at his age ! Evil is who he is ! Trump doesn't care about humanity !

  5. Christ is the word. In the beginning was the word , and the word was with God , and the word is God !
    Words from Trump are evil ! From the issueings of the mouth , the heart speaks ! Boycott Trump's visit! It's your Constitutional right! Don't show up to worship Trump !
